Welcome to Lake Erie Ballet
The Lake Erie Ballet Academy of Dance offers classes to students ages two and a half and older – providing a consistent curriculum in classical ballet. This program of training is rooted in the traditions and philosophies of our founder, Statia Sublette, and those great directors that have followed Arlene Ashton Hays and Sharon Filone.
The Lake Erie Ballet’s classes are conducted with the National Dance Education Organization standards, while maintaining a focus on classical ballet. Throughout the program, students are provided with consistent programming in classical ballet coupled with the alternative disciplines of Jazz, Contemporary and Tap techniques with the best professionals in the field. Each year the Lake Erie Ballet affords it’s student body and companies the opportunity to work and study with artists currently producing work in the field of dance.
Each season of dance training is offered in two eighteen week intervals: September though December and January through May; each culminating in a full length production or public presentation. Each term students are issued progress reports by their primary ballet instructor. At this time, the parent or guardian is allowed to observe classes and assess their child’s progress. At the end of each term the student is tested and evaluated for advancement within the curriculum. Performance is not mandatory for advancement but encouraged. Advancement within the program is granted ultimately by the Director.
